IHE UM FELLOWSJICNIC II AVQGA i
A GREAT SUCCESS Ifi EVERY WAY
The Attendance Larger Than Ever Before and Attractions More
Numerous and Much Better.
A representative of the Journal
had the pleasure of attending the
annual picnic of the Odd Fellows at
Avoca last Thursday, arriving at Av
oca the evening before. Everything
was a hustle and bustle with the
managers to got things In shape for
the morrow. After being safely
quartered at the Oxford hotel, run
by that genial host, GIp Brazelle, we
felt content that our welfare would
be looked after during our stay.
Wednesday evening the clouds
overhead denoted rain and the good
people of the little city retired, pray
ing that at least enough water would
descent to lay the dust, but when
they awoke the next morning from
their peaceful slumbers they were
greatly disappointed, as every ap
pearance of rain had gone and Old
Sol's countenance beaming up in the
eastern horizon as bright and sassy
as ever. About 9 o'clock the farm
ers for mlels in every direction came
pouring Into town with their families
to enjoy the pleasures of the occa
sion. As early as half past nine
o'clock the people began wending
their way to the beautiful grove, sit
uated about a half mile from town,
and by the noon hour the merry-go-round
of Tulene Bros., was doing a
land-office business, and the shows,
kicking mule, lemonade Btands, knife
and whip stands were raking in the
The program did not begin at the
stand until after the first ball game
which was called for at one o'clock.
The first game was between Elm
wood and Manley, and was witness
ed by quite a large crowd on the
grounds adjoining the grove. It was
a fast and furious content, resulting
In a victory for Manley by a score of
8 to 5. The arrangements were that
the Avoca team would play the win
ners, after the program at the plat
form was over with. Some very fine
vocal and instrumental music inter
ested the crowd previous to the ad
dress of Judge Hayward, Republican
candidate for congress. Mr. Hay
ward was in very fair shape, consid
ering the strenuous campaign he has
been making. He spoke at the
Eagle celebration the same day at
11 o'clock and then came direct to
Avoca. The address of Judge Hay-
ward . was well received. He is a
young man of considerable ability
and pleasing address and from what
we could observe will have but pre
cious little opposition, if any, to his
nomination In the vicinity of Avoca.
After the conclusion of the pro
gram at the stand, a large crowd
again repaired to the ball grounds to
witness the second contest between
Manley and Avoca. Then occurred
the hottest game of the two, and the
Avoca team fought hard and furious
to retrieve the honors that Manley
had captured from Elmwood, and
for a while It looked that they were
goiny to do It. But it seemed an
Impossibility, and. the brave fellows
went down in defeat by the very slim
margin of 2 to 1 in favor of Manley.
The latter team Is a good one, and
so are the other two teams, and the
Avoca boys deserve great credit for
their good ball playing. This closed
the program, but. the dancing plat
form kept up a lively gait until the
time Old Sol warned them of the re
turn of another day. The band mus
ic was furnished by Avoca's own
band and we cannot close this ar
ticle without saying a few words in
their behalf. It is strictly a home
organization, made up of the young
men of the town and vicinity, and
was only organized last winter. The
boys have no uniforms yet, but we
understand they have been promised
them by one of Avoca's enterprising
citizens. The boys made excellent
music, Indeed far better than many
bands we know of that has been
playing for two or three years. The
band Is a great credit to the town,
and they, should be encouraged to
keep right onward and upward In
their good work.
Nothing occurred during the day
to mar the pleasure of the occasion,
except the dust, which was intense.
There were about 30 to 4 0 automo
biles on the grounds, and strange to
say, not an accident of any conse
quent orrured and peahe seemed
to be the order of the day. It was
a grand gala day for Avoca and a
great credit to the managers and all
who took part.

Abraham Klmberly of Stockton,

The Main Thing.
If you wish to preserve your own
health you must not forget that the
main thing in the human body Is the
blood. Take care of the blood, keep
it pure, healthy and strong and your
whole body will be In perfect condi
tion. If your blood is of a poor qual
ity, the whole system will Buffer.
You will notice a constant loss of
strength, unability to eat enough and
to digest. In such a condition Trln
er's American Elixir of Bitter Wine
will be of the greatest benefit. It
will stimulate the digestive organs
to work, will clean out the system
thoroughly and will assist in the for
mation of new, rich and healthy
blood. This remedy Is a wonderful
help In many diseases of the stom
ach, the Intestines, the blood and
the nerves. At drug stores. Jos.
